Save the date – upcoming conferences for geoscientists in Vienna

Dear all,

I’d like to draw your attention to the GEO Data Technology Workshop which will take place from 23-25 April 2019 in Vienna, Austria. The workshop will focus on exploring how to best make available Earth observations-based knowledge for international policy frameworks, including the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the Sendai Framework on Disaster Risk Reduction and the Paris Climate Agreement.

With the EGU General Assembly taking place just two weeks earlier on 7–12 April 2019, Vienna will be the epicenter for geoscientists in April. The EGU is the second largest conference in Vienna, covering all disciplines of the Earth, planetary, and space sciences.

Finally, PyDays Vienna will be held again this year on 3-4 May in cooperation with Linuxwochen Österreich. Within just two years, this conference became Austria’s largest Python event, covering a broad range of topics from data science to web development.

More information on the three conferences can be found at:

See you there,

Matthias studied Environmental Information Management at the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences Vienna and holds a PhD in environmental statistics. The focus of his thesis was on the statistical modelling of rare (extreme) events as a basis for vulnerability assessment of critical infrastructure. He is working at the Austrian national weather and geophysical service (ZAMG) and at the Institute of Mountain Risk Engineering at BOKU University. He currently focuses the (statistical) assessment of adverse weather events and natural hazards, and disaster risk reduction. His main interests are statistical modelling of environmental phenomena as well as open source tools for data science, geoinformation and remote sensing.
